NCCBA Luncheon: Financial Industry Overview

July 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


NCCBA presents Michael Gutschmit, a finance master with more than 25 years of varied finance experience, to lead our discussion about the finance industry.

Finance includes the act of providing funds for business activities, making purchases or investing. From personal perspectives, it helps you to understand money and alue, equipping you with the right ways to invest or start a business. In a larger sense, learning about financial concepts and activities benefits the comprehension of policies and trends.

Topic includes:

• Financial analysis, M&A activities, and investment banking
• The Financial Crisis, which he was in the middle of it as a CIO
• Angel investing & strategy, fundraising in the US
• Investing in and operating early-stage companies. Eg. Airwavz Wireless (high-tech startup)
• Gutschmit family business – Alandale in Troy (textiles)

Please join us for this fascinating discussion!
